Eclipselink Pooling equivalent to C3PO


I am trying to prevent this logging


The last packet successfully received from the server was 10,255 milliseconds ago. The last packet sent successfully to the server was 0 milliseconds ago.


I already set the the connection url with auto reconnect in the <strong>persistence.xml</strong>

What I want is that there will be a connection pool, check the connection every minute or hour so the connection is still alive. The <strong>Hibernate</strong> has this feature with c3po. like the ff.

<property name="hibernate.c3p0.timeout">1800</property> <!-- seconds --> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.min_size">5</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.max_size">50</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.max_statements">50</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.timeout">50</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.numHelperThreads">5</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.maxAdministrativeTaskTime">5</property> <property name="statementCacheNumDeferredCloseThreads">1</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.validate">true</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.preferredTestQuery">select 1;</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.testConnectionOnCheckout">true</property> <property name="hibernate.c3p0.automaticTestTable">C3P0</property>

is there anyway that I could do this in eclipselink?


<strong>Update Nov 18, 2014</strong>:

I found the answer I provided originally has some issues! The password retrieved is encrypted by eclipselink so we couldn't use it directly. We can hard-code our password here, but that may not be nice. A better way I found was to pass a custom DataSource object when creating the entity manager factory.

additionalProperties.put(PersistenceUnitProperties.NON_JTA_DATASOURCE, dataSource); emf = Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory(persistUnit, additionalProperties);

Please see the sample code here: <a href="https://github.com/jiakuan/wise-persist/blob/master/src/main/java/org/wisepersist/EntityManagerFactoryProvider.java" rel="nofollow">https://github.com/jiakuan/wise-persist/blob/master/src/main/java/org/wisepersist/EntityManagerFactoryProvider.java</a>

<strong>Original Answer:</strong>

I'm having the same issue, and I just figured out that I could use bonecp datasource (c3p0 should be similar) with eclipselink by creating a custom SessionCustomizer. Something like this:

public class JpaSessionCustomizer implements SessionCustomizer { private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(JpaSessionCustomizer.class); @Override public void customize(Session session) throws Exception { DatabaseLogin databaseLogin = session.getLogin(); String jdbcDriver = databaseLogin.getDriverClassName(); String jdbcUrl = databaseLogin.getDatabaseURL(); String username = databaseLogin.getUserName(); // WARNING: databaseLogin.getPassword() is encrypted, // which cannot be used directly here String password = "please use hard-coded password here"; log.debug("jdbcDriver={}, jdbcUrl={}, username={}, password={}", jdbcDriver, jdbcUrl, username, password); BoneCPDataSource dataSource = buildDataSource(jdbcDriver, jdbcUrl, username, password); databaseLogin.setConnector(new JNDIConnector(dataSource)); } private BoneCPDataSource buildDataSource(String jdbcDriver, String jdbcUrl, String username, String password) { BoneCPDataSource dataSource = new BoneCPDataSource(); dataSource.setDriverClass(jdbcDriver); // Loads the JDBC driver dataSource.setJdbcUrl(jdbcUrl); dataSource.setUsername(username); dataSource.setPassword(password); dataSource.setConnectionTimeout(15, TimeUnit.SECONDS); dataSource.setAcquireRetryAttempts(10); dataSource.setConnectionTestStatement("SELECT 1"); dataSource.setIdleConnectionTestPeriodInSeconds(30); dataSource.setPartitionCount(2); dataSource.setMinConnectionsPerPartition(5); dataSource.setMaxConnectionsPerPartition(10); dataSource.setDisableConnectionTracking(true); return dataSource; } }

If you want to use c3p0 with eclipselink, perhaps you just need to use the code mentioned in this page (<a href="http://www.mchange.com/projects/c3p0/#using_combopooleddatasource" rel="nofollow">http://www.mchange.com/projects/c3p0/#using_combopooleddatasource</a>) in the buildDataSource method.

Some useful links:

with respect to: WARNING: databaseLogin.getPassword() is encrypted;

You can use the following:

Map<Object, Object> props = session.getProperties(); ... dataSource.setPassword((String) props.get("javax.persistence.jdbc.password")); ...
